Acceptance, rejection, and posting

Well, I've had another acceptance. My story, "Eleven Miles" has been accepted for a Static Movement print anthology, Dark Deeds in History. I had a rejection from Untied Shoelaces of the Mind. My story, "Snow Angel" was apparently "too slow" for them. But, on a 'more good news' note, my story "Rosie" posted on Flashes in the Dark today. Go here to read it while it's hot!!!

More, more, more...

The column at Unexplained Mysteries is going great! I've had a flash story, "Rosie" accepted at Flashes in the Dark. It is to be posted on March 21. I've also had another story accepted for a print anthology with Static Movement. This one is titled, "Zep Tepi." It's my tale of cryogenically frozen pre-Egyptians. It was accepted for Incense and Perfume. Well, that's the update for my blog. As soon as anything is posted or printed, or anything else is accepted, I'll let everyone know. Now, back to writing...

I'm a columnist!

I've always had this little secret desire to be a reporter. Since it isn't feasible for me to pursue that anymore, I chased a dream of writing articles. Although article writing isn't really my forte, giving my opinion is. That being said, bloggging seemed like the way to go. However, if no one reads anything you post, what's the point?

I read a website, Unexplained Mysteries. I've been a big fan of it for a few years now. Recently, while reading a column, I saw an ad from the website that they were seeking writers for articles or columns. I felt that this was an opportunity I couldn't pass on. I quickly sent out an opinion article to them. Within 24 hours, they responded that what I wrote was exactly what they were seeking and that I could have my own column.

So, I am now officially a columnist!

I'm so happy with this, I really just don't know what to say. This link is to the actual website. The following link is to my first article with them.

Moving on...

Well, 2011 is movin' and groovin' for me. I've had 3 stories accepted for print anthologies within the past week alone. One story, "The Experiment," was accepted for Tales of Salt and Sorrow a Static Movement anthology. Two other flash fiction stories were accepted for Pot Luck, another Static Movement print anthology. I've got other stories out to other places and am eagerly awaiting their responses. I'm hoping to keep up the hot streak!
